Jim Langevin is set to launch his re-election campaign for Congress in pursuit of his 10th term.
“It has been a privilege to represent the 2nd Congressional District since 2001, and I want to thank my fellow Rhode Islanders for their steadfast support and for allowing me to serve in a position that I love and I’m honored to hold. There is still much work to be done in order to keep our country moving in the right direction, and I hope voters will continue to put their faith in me to represent their best interests in Washington. I’m proud to be declaring my candidacy, and I look forward to continuing to work toward finding solutions to our nation’s most pressing challenges,” said Langevin.
Langevin will launch his campaign on Monday, June 25 at the Rhode Island Secretary of State Elections Division on W. River Street in Providence.
He will file his Declaration of Candidacy at 10 a.m.

He later served as a Warwick State Representative and was then elected Secretary of State.
